The following letter to the editor appeared recently in the Jonesboro Sun. It was written by ACT for America Jonesboro Chapter Leader Robert Norvell – Burkasrugly
Islam is the only one of the world’s religions that kills people who voluntarily leave the Islamic faith. This is not my opinion. It is a provable fact. I would refer you to the Reliance of the Traveler: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law. The Reliance of the Traveler is a compilation of Sharia law accepted by all six schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Here is a direct quote from the chapter on apostasy. “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. (o8.1). Apostasy means to leave Islam for any other religion. Thus, a Muslim that becomes a Jew, or a Christian, or a Hindu or a Buddhist is guilty of apostasy and can be legally killed by any Muslim without trial.
This can and does happen tens of thousands of times in Islamic countries each year. We have a chorus of Muslims advocating for the adoption of Sharia law right here in the United States. We are told ad nauseam that Sharia is harmless and is totally compatible with the United States Constitution. Our First Amendment enshrines the God given right for a person to worship in whatever manner he or she sees fit. Freedom of worship is an alien concept to Islam.
I feel nothing but sympathy for Muslims who have left Islam. For the rest of their lives they must constantly be looking over their shoulder for an assassin who wishes to carry out the dictates of Sharia law. The only thing standing between them and bloody, torturous murder is the United States Constitution.
It is a basic human right to change religions without the threat of death, torture or compulsion.
